Handler falls during dog show! This was the scene at the Westminster Agility Competition earlier today when dog handler, John, lost his balance and nearly fell on top of his dog Ripple. The poor dog looked so startled and scared!
Dog handlers are usually very careful when it comes to their dogs, but sometimes accidents happen.
It was a Boston terrier, however, that took the limelight at the Westminster Dog Show when Wasabi the Pekingese won. In a video that has now gone viral on social media, her handler nearly suffocated the dog when he fainted during the show’s intense agility round.
Ripple was reportedly running along a race track in Tarrytown, New York, according to a DailyMail report. Her owner tripped and fell as she emerged from the tunnel, almost landing on the dog. Ripple can be seen pausing to look at her owner before resuming her run in the viral video.
While the crowd continued to scream for Ripples, a voice can be heard commenting on the owner’s fall. “Oh my goodness,” exclaims a commentator in the video.
